Description:The BA General Studies is designed for students whose interests and career preparation cannot be served by Briercrest’s established majors.

The BA General Studies degree requires 120 credit hours of study including 39 credit hours of 300-400 level course work. Students must complete 21 credit hours of study in one discipline (including at least 9 credit hours at 300+ levels), 15 credit hours in a second (including 6 credit hours at the 300+ levels), and a 12 credit hours in a third discipline (including 6 credit hours at the 300+ levels). Only one of these three content areas may be a ministry option (Christian Ministry, Worship Studies, Youth Ministry) or professional studies discipline (Applied Linguistics, Business, Education, etc.). No more than 36 credit hours may be taken for credit in any one discipline and a maximum of two minors may be declared (if the student so wishes). Students must complete Briercrest College Core requirements as well as all other requirements for graduation.
